Abkhazi Garden is a great garden for people who love gardening or are thinking of designing a garden in an inhospitable location. If you're looking for an outstanding flower garden this isn't the garden for you. The gardens have a very interesting history having been...More

Having read the reviews I was looking forward to something special, but it was disappointing. Gardens are pretty, but nothing spectacular like Butchart. Food was tasty, but expensive. Although it is "free" there is a suggested donation of $10. I wouldn't recommend it.

Beautiful, easily walkable gardens with a nice family run tea house in the center. Service was good and friendly. Food was good but no comparison to White Heather.

This is a by-donation garden, unless you want to go for afternoon tea. This place is absolutely gorgeous. It is an easy walk through the garden and they give you a map with details on each section. A must see for sure!

We rushed in at the last minute so we had to hurry around the garden, but it was BEAUTIFUL! We loved seeing all the flowers and going down the different paths. Definitely a bit of a walk, but so nice.

Rather nice garden, quiet a bit from the centre. Not a big garden. A one hour tour is the maximum. Also teahouse for lunch till 2.30h and tea.

If you are a gardener this is a do not miss attraction. If you are a romantic you will love the story of how it came to be, and if you enjoy tea, this is a lovely place to have it!
